The evolving liturgy

Easter Vigil communion, originally uploaded by seadipper.

With the new ruling on the use of the Extraordinary Form of the liturgy - formerly know as the Tridentine Rite - the ordinary liturgy is also beginning to change as it is being influenced by the old rubrics.

A good sanctuary layout is a big help. Changes over the past year at St Mary Magdalen's, Brighton, have also contributed to the re-shaping of the ceremonial, which is now more orderly and dignified than it has been for many decades. The photograph below shows what it looked like a year ago, when it was as re-ordered in the 1970s.
